Writers to fanbase: Support the Writer's Strike

Pretty cool idea. I've logged my support for Heroes, Lost, Pushing Daisies, The Daily Show, Battlestar Galactica, and--just 'cause--Firefly.

see: Whedonesque: Arise and Seize the Pencils...

excerpt from Joss Whedon: This week, United Hollywood (the blog) met with a group of showrunners who have particularly vocal fan bases. We discussed the fans’ eagerness to put their energy to use in a unified campaign, and this is what we came up with:

Several fan sites have suggested sending pencils into the networks and studios, and some of them are already doing it. It’s a great idea, and we’d like to take it a step further – get everyone buying pencils at the same time, from the same vendor, to be delivered in masses (like the peanuts were for Jericho.) All the fandoms working together, in concert. It seems that the conglomerates take it for granted that the fans will always be there to purchase content, that their concerns about the strike don’t matter. This is a chance for the fans to show that they do matter.
